Course summary

If you want to study law at a British university but don't have the correct qualifications, this LLB Law with International Foundation Year course will prepare you for an undergraduate law degree. Subject to successful completion of the International Foundation Year (including the law module), you'll be guaranteed a place on the three-year LLB law course at Reading in September of the same year.The foundation year will equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills you need to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. It is possible to seek a single visa for the duration of the four-year programme.Through the provision of high-quality teaching that is sympathetic to the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds, the IFP programme will equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills you need to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. Students who qualify to progress from the foundation year (Part 0) will automatically be entered into Part One of LLB Law.Students can seek a single visa for the duration of the four-year course.In addition to gaining legal knowledge, the LLB Law programme will develop your ability to:* consider and evaluate issues* select relevant materials and produce arguments encompassing policy, existing practice and knowledge* theorise and critique legal concepts and the law itself.The degree aims to provide coverage of the core areas of English law – including public and private law – while also allowing you the flexibility to focus on your own interests. You can view optional modules for Year 1 and Year 2 in the "What will you study?" section of this page.You are encouraged to undertake placements during your vacations. Students find and secure placements independently, but with the support of the University.**Careers**Your employability and likely destinations once you leave Reading will be the same as international students on the three-year LLB programme.Under current UKVI rules, international students are able to stay in the UK for four months after the completion of their course. The majority of the international students at our School of Law use this four-month window to travel. They then either remain in the UK for further vocational training, or return home to complete their professional exams. A significantly higher proportion of international students, when compared to home students, continue onto professional examinations; consistently in the region of 90%. The proportion of students remaining in the UK for the Bar Professional Training Course (from that 90%) varies each year but is consistently between one-third and one-half of the students who remain in the UK.
